Delivery Capability, Cleanness, Uniformity, ...

For decades, our customers worldwide have been able to rely on our unlimited ability to deliver and the quality of our products. We provide you with high-quality test sand with the highest possible uniformity in terms of its physical, mineralogical and chemical composition. Test sand being homogeneous over many years enables meaningful production monitoring.

Our claim is to always guarantee a professional and friendly service to all customers. We are therefore particularly proud of the large number of long-standing customer relationships. Reliability in partnership, long-term thinking and sustainable action are a matter of course for us. For example, our production facilities are operated exclusively with electricity that comes from renewable energy sources.

Due to our reliability and our quality awareness the European Cement Association, CEMBUREAU, authorized Normensand GmbH in 1980 to produce CEN-Reference-Sand. The performance of standard sands for cement quality control according to EN 196-1 has regularly to be compared with the performance of CEN Reference Sand.

External quality control

Our CEN Standard Sand EN 196-1 has been controlled by MPA for decades. The MPA Stuttgart examines randomly chosen samples of a whole year of production. As a result, current certificates of conformity are created, which can be downloaded by clicking on the product descriptions above.

“Strength development of cement is still the most important property for quality control of our cement plants. Due to that the application of a high quality and uniform standard sand is essential for us. CEN Standard Sand, produced by the Normensand Gmbh in Beckum, has been fulfilling these expectations for many years now. That is, why we worldwide rely on this Sand in the HeidelbergCement Group.”
